USA TODAY Listen Up: Burlap to Cashmere returns
The band that all but vanished after 1998 makes a triumphant return:

ALT-FOLK
The New York band that all but vanished after 1998 debut Anybody Out There? makes a triumphant return with core players in place and a largely acoustic album of sumptuous and exotic melodies, tight harmonies and poetic lyrics. Producer Mitchell Froom sweeps away the clutter, allowing chief songwriter Steven Delopoulos to carve a niche with graceful, vivid global-folk. — Edna Gundersen

In addition, the band was favorably reviewed by outlets including The Denver Post, The Dallas Morning News, The Indianapolis Star, Metromix New York, The Sunday Oakland Press, Examiner.com – Denver, The Oakland Tribune, Jesusfreakhideout.com and more.

About Burlap To Cashmere:
With its core lineup intact – singer/guitarist/songwriter Steven Delopoulos, guitarist John Philippidis, and drummer Theodore Pagano – Burlap To Cashmere returns with renewed focus, drive and energy. On its first album in more than a decade, Burlap To Cashmere draws from all the influences that made it a touchstone band: Mediterranean and Greek rhythms, flamenco and classic American folk, to create a rich body of work that embraces the past while crystallizing its new creative vision.

In 2010, Burlap To Cashmere headed into the studio with acclaimed producer Mitchell Froom (Elvis Costello, Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow, Tom Waits) to begin work on new material. His rules were simple: “There would be no nudging and no Auto-Tuning. We’re going into this to capture everything that’s organic about the band.”

Recalling the musical intimacy of Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and Simon and Garfunkel, coupled with Delopoulos’ introspective and poetic songwriting, the album announces Burlap To Cashmere’s triumphant return in a record that will surprise longtime enthusiasts and intrigue the uninitiated. Fans of modern troubadour outfits like the Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons will find common ground with Burlap To Cashmere’s output, with the added textures of the Greek and Mediterranean influences further fleshing out the band’s unique take on 21st century folk-rock music.
